Whether you’re looking to sell your home this year, or want to make some updates, I have put together six minor home improvements that can make a BIG impact on your space! From improving saleability to refreshing your home, here are some simple and affordable ideas to help get you started:

  • Painting: One of the easiest ways to spruce up your home for a refreshed vibe or sale is to add a new coat of paint! While it is a relatively simple task for a new homeowner, you might be surprised at how many people will pass on a house because they do not like the paint colors or the flooring. A fresh coat of paint – predominantly neutral colors such as beige, cream, light grays, and soft blues or greens – can make a home feel appealing.
  • Light Fixtures: I don’t know about you, but I haven’t looked at my light fixtures. However, potential buyers will! Light fixtures are another low-cost and relatively easy improvement you can make to your home. Upgrading to newer styles and ensuring they are clean, with fresh LED bulbs, will help add an extra sparkle to your home!
  • Update Your Hardware: Another overlooked aspect of a home is light switches and door handles. If your home is 20 years old, your white light switch covers are probably not so “white,” and your door handles are a little worn down. These cheap and easy replacements will go a long way to boost your interior!
  • Swap Out Your Window Coverings: Like a fresh coat of paint or new hardware, swapping out your window coverings is a small change that can significantly impact you. Replace your stale, white plastic blinds with wooden slats, or update your curtains to something fresh and vibrant!
  • Refinish Your Cabinets: The kitchen is known to be a central space in most homes, but did you know roughly 80% of homebuyers feel that it is the most important space to consider when deciding on a new home? While a complete kitchen renovation may be out of the question, and all-new kitchen cabinets can cost thousands, there is a third option. Refinishing or repainting your cabinets is an excellent alternative for breathing new life into your kitchen!
  • Curb Appeal: They say they don’t judge a book by its cover, but first impressions matter when selling your home. This is where curb appeal comes in! If a potential buyer pulls up to see overgrown weeds, clogged gutters, or cracked concrete, they will already have a negative impression of the home, and it will be harder to impress them once they are inside. Attending to landscaping and any outside maintenance needs will go a long way in making your home more appealing. A pressure wash and a new coat of exterior paint can also do wonders to give your home a facelift!

By putting the effort into completing a few minor changes around your home, you can reap big rewards when it comes time to sell – and increase your comfort in the interim!
